    There is the source and you might as well get the kernel tree (source + patches).

    Can you post your repositories? Type:
    sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list (use kate or nano if you use KDE or something else)

    and post the entire file (copy and paste here)

    Re: HOWTO: NVIDIA driver with Breezy kernels in Hoary

    I had a couple notes to add.

    There were 7 things I installed to make this work:

    gcc-3.4
    gcc-3.4-base
    make
    libc6-dev
    linux-kernel-headers
    linux-sources
    linux-tree

    exporting the CC path did nothing for me, so I just made a sym link like so:

    ln -s /usr/bin/gcc-3.4 /usr/bin/cc

    That worked great.

    I also had a bit of trouble killing with gdm stop, so I just used the command:

    killall -9 gdm

    and killed the X session the standard way. The problem with stopping gdm was that, for some odd reason, it decided to re-initialize itself. Odd, no worries, though.

    Other than those things, great HOWTO. I'm actually a Gentoo noob setting up an Ubuntu machine to migrate someone from Windows to Ubuntu, and so far, it has proven very good. It is a lot easier to use than a lot of distributions and it is very clean. Great choice of Gnome over KDE, IMO, very intuitive.

    The title of my guide is HOWTO: NVIDIA driver with Breezy kernels in Hoary. The drivers that come with Breezy can't be installed in Hoary (problems with dependencies). BUT you can have drivers 7667 thanks to my guide.

    If you use Breezy there is no need to install 7667 using my guide BUT you can use my guide to install other (and newer) versions of the drivers (I don't recommend 7676 though).

    Ok, real silly question here... - How do I setup CC in my path (I think this is why my install keeps failing..) - One of the errors I getting is:

    ERROR: Unable to find the development tool `cc` in your path; please make sure that you have the package 'gcc' installed. If gcc is installed on your system, then please check that `cc` is in your PATH.

    Open synaptic or kynaptic and type gcc in the search field. You should need gcc and gcc-3.4. Install them (not only the base package). You might want to install "build essential" as well. Then try to install the driver again.

    Tell me if it works
